IKAA is delighted to announce that the Lotte Hotel Seoul, a 5-star luxury hotel centrally located between City Hall and Myeongdong, is once again the official hotel for the IKAA Gathering 2019.
IKAA strongly encourages all G19 registrants to stay at the Lotte Hotel from Tuesday, July 30 through Monday, August 5. This will help ensure that you have easy access to all of the many programs and events happening throughout the week. In addition, by choosing to stay at the Lotte Hotel, you are supporting IKAA to secure the banquet rooms, conference facilities, equipment, and meals that are essential for a successful Gathering.
Room Rates
IKAA has secured the amazingly low room rates* below for G19 registrants (these rates are only 5,000 KRW higher than in 2016!):
  • 170,000 KRW++ per night for a Superior Room (1-2 persons) — approx. $151 USD / 133 Euros
  • 220,000 KRW++ per night for a Superior Room (3 persons) — approx. $195 USD / 173 Euros
  • 225,000 KRW++ per night for a Deluxe Room (1-2 persons) — approx. $200 USD / 176 Euros
  • 275,000 KRW++ per night for a Deluxe Room (3 persons) — approx. $244 USD / 216 Euros

* As a courtesy for those staying longer, room rates are valid from July 24 – August 9, 2019.
++ Taxes & Service Fees are not included.

As a special “Thank You” to all registrants who stay at the Lotte Hotel from at least Tuesday, July 30 through Monday, August 4, IKAA is offering the following additional benefits:
  • A $50 USD discount off of the G19 adult registration fee
  • Free buffet breakfast at the hotel from Tuesday, July 30 through Saturday, August 3
Note: IKAA will verify all registrants’ eligibility for these benefits.

Other Considerations
Seoul hosts numerous international conferences and events that create a shortage of accommodations, especially in the month of August. Please note that IKAA has been advised that, due to an influx of Chinese tourists, many nearby hotels are already filling up for late July – early August of 2019.
August in Seoul is extremely hot and humid and sometimes rainy. Staying at the Lotte Hotel, with its internal access to the subway, a grocery store, restaurants, and fitness facilities, will likely make for a more comfortable and relaxing stay for all participants.
